I am impressed with the food and the service. They even go to the extent of printing the message of "Happy Birthday" on their 1 page menu. I am really impressed with this extra mile, particularly the manager Ms Dwi.

We were staying at the hotel and were looking forward to tasting Lao - what a disappointment at all levels - service was slow although the restaurant was far from full, the food was at best very average - no taste, texture was not appealing - we were expecting something much more tasty and original - we were very disappointed
